Happy Wednesday sailors,

Some good news this week – the Rolex Sydney Hobart has been given the green light to go ahead with the re-opening of the Tasmanian borders. This year’s fleet has 98 entries and includes some two-handed entries, with the addition of this new division for the 2020 event.

I was very excited to receive my pre-order signed copy of Lisa Blair’s new book Facing Fear on Friday. Admittedly I haven’t had a chance to start reading it yet, but can’t wait to crack it open and read about her solo voyage around Antarctica.

I hope you enjoy reading this week’s newsletter that includes updates on the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race as well as stories about the America’s Cup, Vendee Globe and more.

Until next week, happy sailing 😊⛵
